They say you can’t re-invent the wheel or improve the design of the bicycle. Gocycle did both.
Gocycle is an automotive joy to live with. Ergonomic, elegant, lightweight, ingenious and fun. A talking point wherever it goes.
So passionate was Richard Thorpe about creating the perfect e-bike that he left a dream design job with McLaren Cars to dedicate all of his time to that purpose.
With his experience in designing lightweight racing car components and enthusiasm for innovative engineering excellence, Richard believed that an e-bike should be elegant, desirable, a joy to live with and fun.
As of 2011, European law mandates that all automobiles are required to have daytime running lights (DRLs) which substantially increase the visibility of cars to other road users. The Gocycle G3 comes fitted with an automotive inspired DRL employing our proprietary light pipe design and technology.
Extended "to be seen" light zone with Gocycle G3 daytime running light (DRL).
Normal “to see” light zone. Optional Gocycle integrated Light Kit.
All the information the rider needs is presented in a streamlined, simple dash – battery level, driving mode, speed and gear position.
Shimano® Nexus® 3-speed hub gear with Gocycle electronic predictive shifting from button on handlebars
Hydraulic disc brakes ensure full control in all scenarios
Lightweight (16kg) and stowable, no other e-bike has the versatile dynamics of Gocycle.
Portable docking station available as an accessory.
A bespoke front-hub motor separates the powered drive from pedal drive.
Lighter and providing better front/rear weight distribution, this system also provides powerful advantages when the lights go green. Conventional e-bikes use derailleur gears which can leave even experienced cyclists in the wrong gear at the lights.
Not only does Gocycle’s predictive electronic gear shift ensure that you arenever in the wrong gear, the front hub drive never can be. Only Gocycle makes sure you always make a clean getaway.
Powerful micro motor with more than 2X the power-to-weight ratio of conventional e-bike motor drives
Gocycle provides contact points in exactly the same place as a large-wheel bike – but with more adjustment to fit more riders.
The Vgonomic™-designed seat-post and frame geometry, combined with height and reach adjustable handlebars, provides adaptable fittingwith superior comfort levels for a wide range of body types.
Gocycle has an automotive inspired adjustable driving position. Cars come in one size with an adjustable position; so does Gocycle.
Lightest in class, Gocycle also has perfect fore-aft weight distribution with mass centralised around the bottom bracket. The low centre of gravity makes the bike agile and responsive to ride, and easy to lift and manoeuvre at home.
No cables, no chains, no gears, sprockets, or oil – no mess. Gocycle can be taken anywhere.
Smartphone app links to Gocycle easily with Bluetooth®. Use the GocycleConnect® app to select from three pre-set modes or set up your own custom mode.
